New York police sergeant killed in Bronx shootout

NEW YORK — A New York City police sergeant has been fatally shot and another officer wounded after a shootout in the Bronx that left the suspect dead.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the sergeant's death Friday. He says the other officer was shot in the leg and is undergoing treatment.

Authorities say the gunman fired on officers who had stopped his car near a ballfield following a brief pursuit.

A law enforcement official identifies the suspect as 35-year-old Manuel Rosales. The official says a woman called 911 after Rosales broke into her home, violating an order of protection.

The official wasn't authorized to discuss an ongoing case and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
